The World's End Header

The first domestic trailer for Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End gives us another look at the final installment of the director’s comedic pseudo-trilogy, better known as the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy. Each of those films covered a particular genre and gave it a comedic twist. Shaun of the Dead was a zombies, while Hot Fuzz was police/action, now The World’s End focuses on an entirely different genre, one that has apocalyptic implications. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite with Wright for a third time, and they are joined by Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, and Eddie Marsan.

Check out the new trailer below.

The World's End Image

Seems like every year Hollywood gets hooked on a certain movie genre and becomes bound and determined to make every third or fourth theatrical release an entry in that genre. This year we’re getting a trio of apocalyptic comedies, all three hitting this summer and two of them co-starring Craig Robinson. But only one of them reunites director Edgar Wright with his frequent creative collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the same all-star team that gave us the classic British comedy series Spaced and the mind-blowing quotable cult masterpieces Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and that is The World’s End.

Pegg recently tweeted a link to the latest poster for The World’s End in advance of the movie’s first trailer, scheduled to debut later this week. You can check out the tweet and poster here below.

The World's End Image

A pair of new images have been released from the highly anticipate third movie in director Edgar Wright‘s Blood and Ice Cream trilogy, titled The World’s End. It of course follows previous hits Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

The movie once again stars Simon Pegg as Gary King, a man holding on tightly to his younger years, and Nick Frost as his former best friend and current successful lawyer Andy. Along with fellow childhood friends played by Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) as estate agent Oliver, Paddy Considine (Cinderella Man) as architectural consultant and former rocker Steven, and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) as a car dealer named Peter, they will reunite and set off to accomplish something they had attempted two decades earlier.

Continue on below to read a synopsis and check out the two new images, including one that looks a little more fitting to the apocalyptic events many believe will take place in The World’s End.

The World's End

The first teaser poster for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End was more like a list of pubs the protagonists would like to drink at before the world ends. Every single pub had its own unique name and appropriately fitting font. But that was just the teaser poster.

Now comes yet another teaser poster that sheds more light on the fact that the pub shares its name with a cataclysmic event.

Check out the latest teaser poster for the film below.

Martin Freeman and Eddi Marsan Join The World's End

Production for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, the third installment of the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy, has already begun. Wright reunites with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in a comedy that involves heavy drinking and a possible apocalyptic event. Earlier this year, the film added Paddy Considine and Rosamund Pike to the cast. Now we are learning that two more actors will be joining them as well.

Focus Features announced that Martin Freeman (Shaun of the Dead, The Hobbit) and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) will be joining Pegg, Frost, Considine, and Pike. According to Empire, Freeman and Marsan’s characters will be part of a group of friends who try to complete an epic pub crawl they did 20 years ago. No word yet on who Pike will be playing, but it is assumed that she could play a love interest to one of the characters, presumably Pegg’s character.

Edgar Wright’s ‘The World’s End’ Adds Paddy Considine To The Cast

Paddy Considine

One of the most notable things about Edgar Wright’s Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy is the use of the same actors playing different parts. It’s unknown if Martin Freeman will appear in some way in the final film, The World’s End, with his schedule tied up with The Hobbit films, and there is no word if Bill Nighy is signed on. But one familiar face is indeed coming back, and it’s the face that you see in the header.

Paddy Considine, who was in Hot Fuzz, will be joining Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Rosamund Pike for this bar-hopping film that sends the cast on a quest to reach a fabled bar, The World’s End, during what turns out to be the end of the world. We don’t know if it will be one of those typical world-ending catastrophe since there is a rumor floating around that there might be aliens involved in this comedy.

Geeks of Doom Netflix Streaming Review

Netflix Review: TyrannosaurTyrannosaur
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Paddy Considine
Starring Peter Mullan, Olivia Colman, Eddie Marsan
Strand Releasing
Originally Released: January 21, 2011

In his directorial debut, English actor Paddy Considine serves up the indie drama Tyrannosaur; a wonderful but gritty film that follows the lives of two people and their fates as their paths cross. With an intense storyline with some incredible and emotional punches-to-the-gut, along with some of the most straightforward and brutal performances you will see in a long time, Tyrannosaur is not just a good movie, it is a must-see experience.

Tyrannosaur shadows the journey of two individuals, both wrestling with darker sides of the lives, and what happens when they cross paths. The main character, Joseph, played by Peter Mullan, is drowning in alcohol and depression, aggravated at life – with every decision and action just further adding upon his depression and anger.

Flashback Movie Review: In America

In America DVDIn America
DVD
Directed by Jim Sheridan
Starring Sarah Bolger, Emma Bolger, Paddy Considine, Djimon Hounsou, Samantha Morton
2003

A little girl by the name of Christy (Sarah Bolger) comes to America, Manhattan specifically, from Ireland and captures everything on her little red camcorder. She tapes anything she finds interesting, and that can be a lot. This camcorder sees everything from normal people walking the streets of Manhattan, a little girl beautifully singing Desperado, and even the end of days for two people she dearly loves. She lies on the top bunk, younger sister Ariel (Emma Bolger) on the bottom, and replays these happenings every night on her little video screen.

Some movies shake our emotions, others give us goosebumps, others even make us feel an overwhelming sense of joy but it’s a rarity that one single movie can possess all three of these golden qualities. In America (2003) is that rarity. It works mainly because of the performances but mostly due to the fact that director Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot) handles the movie with such delicacy and care because he dedicates this film to his younger brother Frankie who went through a battle with cancer. With that said he creates a realm of reality so personal that the least this movie can do to the human body is to resonate through its soul.
